Natural Strategies for Feminization and Masculinization of Voice

Please join Tranquility for our July monthly meeting.

This month we have speech pathologist Paula Sullivan joining us. She will be talking about voice production and vocal health. There will be some “hands on” interactions with attendees identifying pitch and demonstrations of vocal activities meant to feminize or masculinize your speech (whether or not you decide to transition medically). A discussion of self-help resources will follow.

And as per usual the family support group will be meeting adjunctly. Melina however, will be out of town so another parent will be leading.

Hope to see yall there!

Blast From the Past

Have you ever heard anyone argue that transgender people didn’t exist before the last 10 years, that it’s a fad?


Come to learn about transgender and otherwise gender bending people from ancient to modern day history including:

  • Queen Christina of Sweden
  • Chevalier d’Eon
  • Abel Barbin
  • We’wha
  • Lilie Elbe
  • Marsha P. Johnson

& more….

The family support group is occurring as usual led by Melina Rayna Barratt (

Spa Day

Relax and rejuvenate ­čÖé We’ll start with a 5 minute gender journey storytelling by one of our members and then slide into our spa day. In the main room at the Pride Center there will be materials for making your own sugar scrub, a themicure (manicure) station, plenty of games and representatives from the Academy for 5 Element Acupuncture offering information about their services . In a separate quieter room there will be 2 local massage therapists offering regular and Thai massage. Also, the family support group will be meeting with Melina as usual in a third room.

Name, Gender Marker Change Workshop


Have you been interested in beginning the process of legally changing your name or gender marker on legal documents but felt intimidated by all the paperwork? Simone Chriss, a lawyer from the Southern Legal Council (a┬ástatewide not-for-profit public interest law firm that is committed to the ideal of equal justice for all and the attainment of basic human and civil rights) will be helping us walk through all the steps. You will be able to fill out all the paperwork that day with her guidance. What you will need to fill out the paperwork are┬áthe addresses of all the places you’ve lived at – or as many as you can remember –┬á information about any criminal history, creditors judgments against you or any debt, and how much money and assets you own.

And of course we will also have snacks and drinks as usual and begin the meeting with a fun icebreaker.
